One Four Challenge: Week 1

On four challenge (640x579)

This is a new challenge for me.  Just up my alley actually as I love to edit.

So this is week one.  I added the cartoon filter from GIMP and cropped the image to frame the flowers.  At the end of the month I will post all four images with the original.

Once you see this post – you have until the following Sunday ( Aussie time – currently GMT +11 hours ) to create your own challenge post.  Include a link in your post to this blog post. This will create a ping back (link) from WP blogs.
You are also very welcome to leave a comment on my blog with your post link for the week.

Please make sure that your Nov 1 post is linked to my Nov 1 post etc… so that we are linking to the same week.

The Daily Post: minimalist

Good morning from a rather chilly Hastings morning.  It must have reached down to zero last night as this morning I heard the drone of helicopters over the orchards and vineyards again.  We are well into Spring, nearly summer.  This weather is going crazy.

Anyway the prompt from The Daily Post is minimalist –

Minimalist photography is characterized by a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer. At first thought, it may seem like it would be easy to shoot an engaging minimalist photograph, when indeed it can often be the opposite. A minimalist photo can also effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity, and it is anything but “plain”.

This meant for me, keeping my editing to a minimum.  This next photo was cropped and tweaked slightly to get rid of the annoying background.  That is all.
